August 31, 2014  This is week 7 of Rick's Logo Challenge, and I can hardly wait to see everyone's images.  You all know the rules, but just in case we have some new folks, here they are:  1)  I know the symbol and the company. 2)  I've seen the symbol before, but I can't connect a name/company to it. 3) I have not ever seen this symbol before.  And - MOST IMPORTANTLY:  "DO NOT REVEAL THE NAME OF THE COMPANY IN YOUR COMMENTS"  That spoils the fun of the game.  To see answer, click here: http://lgood.smugmug.com/Portfolio/Humor/Signs/i-HBKDGnq  Friends, this has been a really, really fun challenge!  Thanks Rick for creating it!  What's the next challenge?  As most know, I've been off SM for 2 or 3 weeks, so I haven't seen much of the discussions about a new challenge.  I'm planning to start posting again regularly.  Missed you guys.  Have a wonderful Sunday!!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
